I finally got my update on my mutual funds in the mail today. $5,943.
The last time I got a statement it was $5,212, which means they have gone up in value around $700 in 3 months.
That’s not too bad. However, to give you some perspective, I’ve had these mutual funds since 1999. Originally they were worth $40,000. After 9/11, they tanked to about $10,000. They never really recovered much after that…. and tanked ever further with this current economic crisis.
It pains me to see not even $6,000 where there used to be $40,000.
Oh well… at least they’re increasing in value I guess. =)
